Register Now! First Virtual PA Abandoned Mine Reclamation Conference Oct. 28-29

Instead of you coming to the annual PA Abandoned Mine Reclamation Conference, this October the Conference is coming to you!
The Conference will be held online on October 28-29 from Coal Country, Pennsylvania.
This virtual meeting will ensure the health and safety of its hundreds of participants, some of whom typically travel quite a distance to attend.  The best news?  No mask required!
Many of the typical Conference offerings will be made available online, including Zoom-incorporated video chats, webinars, virtual networking starting before and after the conference, and virtual booth spaces where participants can chat with vendors, video chat and do surveys.
There will even be virtual tours!
The platform selected by the Committee-- Whova Conference-- will help our attendees stay connected and provide great opportunities for communication.  Its Community Board allows users to plan social activities, post jobs, use a Q&A feature and more.
Click Here to register to attend the Conference and you will receive the credentials and instructions to access the Whova Virtual Conference applications.
The email you register with is the one which will be used for Conference access and communication, so be sure to follow the instructions on the registration page.
Virtual Conference web applications will be opened weeks ahead of time so you can get used to browsing around and start chatting with other registered attendees and exhibitors.
This way you can plan ahead and arrange your schedule to sign up for sessions you are interested in attending.
Once you register, you will need a computer, smartphone or valet with Internet access to participate in the Conference.  You don't need to download anything because the free Whova web app runs through your browser (Google Chrome is preferred).
Alternatively, the Whova mobile app is free for attendees who choose to use a mobile device.  Make sure to set a profile on the app.
There is a helpful tutorial to become familiar with using the Whova app at its website.
A list of scheduled presentations, registration link and instructions, tour information, sponsors, as well as the chance to become a conference sponsor can be found on the PA Abandoned Mine Reclamation Conference website.
